Mallow shot matching rounds of 87 on the par 71 course in two days of stroke play to place ninth overall in the 13-15 age division.

Isabella McCauley of Inver Grove Heights shot the best round of the tournament in either bracket with a 1-under-par 141 (70-71).

The 16-18 bracket was a repeat battle between Red Wing teammates Sophia Yoemans and Leah Herzog. Yoemans, a three-time state champion, won by a stroke with rounds of 73 and 70 (143). Herzog rallied from a first round 76 (+5) to post a 68 on day two to finish a shot back with 144.
